In biblatex citation, I want to put `and' in between author name if number of author is 2.

Otherwise for more number of authors the citation output will `first author et al., year'.

For example if bib file contains :

@article{two_name, title={ABC}, author={First, name and Second, name}, year={2002} } @article{three_name, title={ABC2}, author={First, name and Second, name and third, name}, year={2002} }

Then the citation should result in

  • First and Second, 2002 for \cite{two_name}
  • First et al., 2002 for


NOTe: maxcitenames=2 option of biblatex produce the first output correct. However, the second citation is rendered as First, Second et al., 2002.

    What bibliography style do you use? Have a look here, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/121625/…. I'd like to test it, but you have to produce a minmal working example. – omisson Oct 6 '17 at 6:43

    Have a look here too tex.stackexchange.com/a/69030/94317, it could be related to disambiguation purposes. – omisson Oct 6 '17 at 6:50
  • @omission My options were [hyperref=true, backref=true, style=authoryear-comp, citereset=chapter, maxcitenames=2, maxbibnames=100, block=none, sorting=ynt]{biblatex} – MS_ Oct 6 '17 at 7:23
